Even if the pledges in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change are implemented, we will still not reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to meet the goals. The UN Environment Emissions Gap Report 2017 states that for the 2°C goal, this shortfall could be 11 to 13.5 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. For the 1.5°C goal, it could be as much as 16 to 19 gigatonnes. We urgently need more ambitious action to close these gaps. So, this latest 1 Gigaton Coalition Report helps to focus those efforts by quantifying the progress secured through renewable energy and energy efficiency.
